It was dark in there that October day when HDF, Chuck Behrensmeyer and I climbed the NW Couloir on the Middle Teton. That was the same route he died on the coming January.

A sad reminder, Jerry.

Harry and I were friends and did several important to me climbs together.  

He will forever be missed.

Certainly Harry wasn’t one to miss the possibility of engaging “fun hog-ness” in every activity, that’s for sure – so here’s a photo of him kayaking the Taos Box. Crédito total, Burnham Arndt

Harry Frishman, Kim Schmitz, Jonathan Wright 1980.  Impermanence.  All three took other paths.

Gorge Gardner Fund Event


The George Gardner Scholarship Fund invites you to join us for an evening with Angela Hawse as she shares tales of travels and work on skis from Svalbard to Antarctica, and a race across Mongolia on a children’s motorcycle. Angela Hawse is an IFMGA Mountain Guide, President of the AMGA and long-time local whose office has the best views in the world. She has guided locally and globally for 35 years. The first mountain she ever climbed was in the San Juans Mountains. Her first ice climbing partner here was George Gardner, with whom she worked in the Tetons for 13 years. Since then she’s guided five of the Seven Summits, led 25 high altitude expeditions, and explored far reaches of the world for work and play. She’s witnessed climate change in the mountains first hand at alarming rates. Much of her work is focused on education and advocacy for mountain guides and youth, working with Protect Our Winters, founding the Ridgway Community Apiary, and most recently joining the Ridgway Sustainability Advisory Board.
